Queens Cross Church, Aberdeen    Beethoven Plus 5: Krysia Osostowicz, violin and Daniel Tong, piano  

sound in association with Aberdeen Chamber Music Concerts

 "Beethoven Plus is a Beethoven cycle with a new dimension:  Krysia and Daniel
invited ten composers to each write a short companion piece inspired by one of Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas. These new pieces – each about 5 minutes long – are heard together with the original sonatas, creating conversations between living composers and Beethoven, and shedding new light on what Beethoven’s music means to us today. The ten pairs will be played in five concerts over six days. Today’s concert comprises two of these pairs:
Peter Ash A Major Chase
Beethoven Violin Sonata no 2 in A major, op. 12 no. 2
Judith Bingham The Neglected Child
Beethoven Violin Sonata no. 4 in A minor, op. 23
David Matthews Sonatina
Beethoven Violin Sonata no. 10 in G major op. 96"
